Went with my wife for dinner, while choosing the fish, the guy at the counter was so rude and unprofessional to explain, he was saying if you want to eat ,eat it or else you may proceed, this was his attitude. I just left the...restaurant same time, I spoke to the person incharge. He apologised, he ruined our evening. No sense of hospitality.More

I have been visiting But Qtair for the last 10 years or more. But I think this is the time to write a review. After having so many times best experience, I visited today with my friend to enjoy the Friday fish Biryani. When we...enter there is one staff taking temperature check. All tables are spreaded around to follow the safety guidelines. Luckily we got table with on few mins. As usually I used to wait upto 30 to 45 mins. We ordered 2 fish Biryani. It was served with nice flavored biryani rice, fried fish, papad and raita. It was so tasty. The best part is it's free flow of both biryani and fish. They just charge 13 dhs per person. With 2 bottles of water we paid only 28 dhs for 2 people. I dnt think in Dubai you would get similar quality food with this as all you can eat. Well done team But Qatir.More

Just one of the restaurants that leave a mark on you and you go back again and again. Simple masala fish fry and prawns fry with rice and coconut based spicy curry. . . If you have been in UAE for over a decade like...me, and you’ve visited this restaurant then you’d remember its authentic character with long queues to order, cash only payment and plastic table and chairs in a corner surrounded by wooden boats that sometimes you’d get lost before you end up finding the spot. . . So much has changed around kite beach and this simple restaurant has had a makeover but the food and service remain the same and so is cash only payment. . There have been times where minimum wait time to order standing queue was 40 mins or more. . A favorite among new tourist and a little known secret of expats in town. . This time around we didn’t need to wait to order or to be seated. It was quick 10-15 mins. Seems crowds were flocking towards all the new fancy looking eateries in Meraas Kite beach. . Love this place and hope they survive Covid-19 and we get to eat there forever.More

My husband and i went to buqatir to eat as it is known to be the best restaurant in dubai. Honestly the fish dint tasted good at all. My husband got sick and ended up in the hospital and got the WORST stomach flu. Their...hygiene level is ZERO. I will never go back there and wont even recommend to any one. If u love urself and ur loved ones dont go there as for sure u will end up in the hospital. This is my first review for any restaurant as i dont want anyone else to go through the stress and pain we have gone through. This is the worst restaurant ever...More

An old and shabby restaurant , however the food was good expected it to be a grilled place instead of deep fried.

This restaurant served us differently from the customers who speak their own language. We need to go to the counter to pick only one kind of fish, but the local customers seem to enjoy a kind of all you can eat service with various kinds...of fishes. Besides, we ordered the bottled water in the beginning, the restaurant staff didn’t not bring the water to us until we asked three times again and again!More

There is no menu, you stand in line, get to the ordering window, pick the size of the fish and also the amount of shrimp you like. Pay by cash only. The fish and shrimp are marinated the same, spicy. The fish skin was nice...and crispy but not really something I would return for. Served with rice and so-so roti canai.More
